Funko Max Rebo POP Vinyls Exclusive Figure Revealed!

Funko is the King of All Exclusives when it comes to toys, and this summer they’ve added another branch to their royal repertoire: Specialty Store Series exclusives! Available only from comic book and specialty stores, the first few of these exclusives were all based on Marvel and DC superheroes. But finally it’s Star Wars’ turn, and it’s a doozy: the Funko Max Rebo POP Vinyls figure has now been revealed!

Funko Max Rebo POP Vinyls Figure

With Funko having well and truly mined every possible variant of every main and secondary character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, they’ve turned their sights back to the Original Trilogy for their latest release: Max Rebo!

I actually thought that a Funko POP Vinyls Max Rebo figure might be included in the Jabba’s Palace Smuggler’s Bounty box, but Funko pulled the wool over our eyes with Serving Droid R2-D2 instead. I feared that meant that we’d never see the Ortolan Musician in stylized vinyl figure form, but it looks like Funko simply had other plans for Jabba’s favorite keyboardist!

Specialty Series Star Wars POP Vinyl Max Rebo PackagedAlthough the Max Rebo Funko POP Vinyls figure is an exclusive release that won’t be available from major retailers, it’s still a unique mold with the unique numbering designation of #160 in the Funko Star Wars POP Vinyls series, so he’s definitely not a skippable character for those who aim to be numbering completists with this line!

The elephantine Max Rebo vinyl figure looks terrific and is a 100% new mold, but I’m disappointed that he wasn’t released in a box set with a keyboard and the rest of the band. With Max Rebo now on the way, could we see Funko Sy Snootles and Droopy McCool POPs down the road (or sooner than we think) as well? We’ll have to wait and see!

Funko Star Wars POP Vinyls Max Rebo POP ExclusiveBigBadToyStore should have a small quantity of POP Max Rebo available for order this week, but if you mad their pre-order, you’re best off asking at your local comic book store.

What do you think of the Max Rebo POP Vinyls figure, Star Wars collectors? Would you like to see Funko continue the Max Rebo Band with more specialty series exclusives, or is just the leader of the group enough for you?
